About

Overview

Author of the international bestseller A Man Called Ove

Elsa is seven years old and different. Her grandmother is seventy-seven years old and crazy. She is also Elsa’s best, and only, friend. At night Elsa takes refuge in her grandmother’s stories, in the Land of Almost-Awake and the Kingdom of Miamas where everybody is different and nobody needs to be normal. When Elsa’s grandmother dies and leaves behind a series of letters apologizing to people she has wronged, Elsa’s greatest adventure begins.

Customer Reviews

"Every bit as churlish but lovable as Backman's cantankerous protagonist in his debut, A Man Called Ove, precocious Elsa will easily work her way into the hearts of readers . . . A delectable homage to the power of stories to comfort and heal."
